Tip Toe Through The Turnips

The other morning I decided to get up at, gasp, 6:40 am and take a walk. Instead of walking down the sidewalk, like any other normal person would do, I decided to walk gallantly down all the ally ways. Now you may think that I do this because I'm a person that has some sort of depth to them but really it's because I'm nosy and like to peak into people's back yards and glimpse into their lives nay their very souls. Okay so maybe that last part is a bit of a stretch. Regardless it is still fun to take a step out of my own world and see how other people live their lives. Anyways, back to my point, I was amazed at how many beautiful, functional gardens there were. They were all so organized and manicured. These gardens are very telling into the character of those that take care of them. That is why I forbid anyone to peak into my backyard and take a gander at my "garden". So come take a walk with me through the gardens, I mean by the gardens. And don't forget to breath in the fresh morning air.

Ahhhhh, don't you feel better?

I do feel better...but not about my own garden. Those are pretty!

Sweet! I wish I had the time for a garden like that. Have a great day!

SIGH. BIG SIGH. This is one of the things that I covet most--a fabulous garden. Next year I'll give a garden a whirl. We'll see how that all shakes down. Somehow, I doubt that it will be as fabulous as any of these.

Oh, and I'm totally an alley girl. When my kids were tiny I used to go on looooooong walks to escape our dank dark student housing apartment...and mostly to spy on the rich people who lived all around the University. ;)
